Days like today make me think of all the fun fall things I want to do this year. I get all gitty just thinking about it!
On my fall to do list is:
Go apple picking. I haven't been in years and now that my little guy can walk on his own I think it will be the perfect time to make a trip to the apple orchard.
Once we have bushels of apples I plan to make lots of apple pies. As well as batches and batches of applesauce. Every year my grandma,cousin and I get together and have our traditional apple sauce making night. There is just something special about that applesauce when it's made with grandmas help! The best applesauce out there if I do say so myself!
Another soon to be tradition on my fall to do list is the Walker Homestead Show in Brookfield, Massachusetts. Every September they have their fall show and this year will be the first of many fall trips I hope to make to the Homestead show. http://www.walkerhomestead.com/
A week after the Walker Show I will be heading to Warrensburg, New York for the largest garage sale. http://www.warrensburggaragesale.com/ . My mom lives near there so we will stay at her house. Which is great! Since after a long day of walking and shopping, it'll be nice not to have to go too far to crash!
I also can't wait to start decorating for autumn. My house needs a little warming up. During the summer months I like to keep my decor light and summery. Come fall tho, I am so ready to darken things up and make the house warm and cozy!
I love making the house warm and cozy, and what better way to do that then with some good hearty home cooked meals. I love when the nights are getting darker, the air is getting chillier and there's a warm home cooked meal waiting on the table. Now if that doesn't say warm and cozy, I don't know what does!
There are so many things to do in the fall. Some things I haven't mentioned yet are picking out mums at the local farm stand, going to the pumpkin patch and picking out the perfect pumpkin, taking a nice fall drive through the back roads, buying cider donuts, raking leaves ( or more like watching the husband rake them!) , taking a fall walk in the woods, my list could go on and on.
I know fall will be here soon. It is such a short season so I plan to savior every moment of it!
Hope you all have a fantastic day!
Until the next time,
